AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is an elective class dedicated to student success. This class provides daily support in all content areas as well as setting a foundation for college and career readiness.
AVID students work with their AVID elective teacher to develop the reading, writing, critical thinking, and interpersonal skills that are needed to thrive in high school and beyond.
AVID supports students’ study and organizational skills so that they can be successful in honors and advanced classes. Not only do the students receive support from their teacher, but they will also have in class tutoring twice a week to support understanding and collaboration skills.
Between project based learning, monitoring grades and exploring college campuses, the AVID elective provides a unique opportunity for students to prepare for life after DMLK.
